FOOTBALL- Former French international Steve Marlet has been placed under investigation on charges of gang rape by a court in Auxerre.

"A second man was also placed under investigation...and a third has been given the status of assisted witness,” a prosecutor Estelle Meyer said. “At the time of the events, in 1997, the victim was a minor.”
